ALBANY, GA (WALB) -      A Dougherty County man, caught driving a stolen golf cart, is charged with theft by receiving tonight.

Police say he should have known something was wrong when he bought a 4-wheeler and a golf cart for only 200-dollars.

Jon Blair and a friend were caught driving the 4-wheeler and golf cart down Radium Springs Road Wednesday night.

Just 90 minutes earlier Steve Peck reported his golf cart stolen from his business on the Liberty Bypass.

When Blair was spotted with the stolen golf cart, he told Police he paid 200 dollars for the vehicles.

The state's theft law says people must use common sense when buying items.  And police say Blair should have known he got a deal that was too good to be legit.
